that these facilities continue to be safe and in operational use, if they are unforeseen spending requirements whether environmental that require immediate corrective action or unfunded requirements for benefits this could force the trade offs with the capitol budget. i believe that the port commission has done a good job dreking with the policies and directing limited precious resources to the water front and improvement, just this morning, port staff did receive confirmation that affirmed our credit a rating, just finished the review in connection with our 36 million series, 2008, and 200 d bonds. the port notes are stable structure, strong financial profile and policies and great location and the reverse revenue streams and the ratings continue to be that we have notified the completing to our deferred capitol. i believe with the continued financial stewardship and with the creative trifnging it will create the partnerships to develop a more complete solution to the backlog. >> with that, here is megan. >> good afternoon, commissioners. i'm megan wallace, budget manager of the port. this morning i

agree with today's comment about risk i used the word distractions at the last meetings and i'm not a verse to the advocates proposal and or some scales version of it but i just continue to reinforce that these efforts not threaten or under plain our existing utility work in water power and sewer and i can't express that concern enough so i'm not yet convinced that we should commit any hetchy power to this if it proves and we have resource, available, i'm up to that and we should be open to that but we have got to see i think, today just made the comment that we should walk before we can run and we have not been in the retail business to multiple customers like this before. we should see that we can do that first before we try to do that for everybody. >>> thank you david. >> thanks. >>> yeah, just i think there is two question that is we are going to have to wrestle with over the next month or so and the first is what to do about the roll-out and the i think the 20% number for opting out is assuming we have rates comparable with p g and e social security's and i have n

a different type of use and just out of respect for that conversation i was going to wait off and on that grand fathering issue. we have a second grand fathering issue on the academy of arts, which is on townsend street. and this would grandfather in the cu application and not of the use itself. i was going to ask planning some questions about that, but i wanted to go through the outstanding issues first. the second outstanding issue is the reducing the flexibility for historic buildings. this was a recommendation made by planning. i am going honor planning's recommendation regarding this. while there are a number of buildings historic on their on, if you look at the number contributing, it's an incredible number within the west soma plan and i don't think that was the intention of the plan to allow such greater flexibility for such a great proportion of buildings. so i will support planning's recommendation. what chair wiener brought up is increased inclusionary housing fees. those are that are half an acre or more. again this is consistent with eastern neighborhoods. the p
on the security detail. they had get used to some weird things i had to do. whether it was eating chinese food and cheese cake at the same time. or trying to handle the very high levels of meetings i was required to attend. they were very forthright in their jobs and duties. and i have yet to get the pie in the face. you got to history for that one. anyway, i do enjoy working with the police department. the culture here is solid. the teamwork is no different than the best of the teams that work in san francisco. and someone, myself being a veteran of government in 23 years, i have always felt that our police department is not only the best but i am certainly very proud of each and everyone of you, of the whole police department. and today particularly the 56 who have earned these promotions. and have done all the things that you need to do to lead a department and continue leading in a best fashion. with that i offer my sincere pride and congratulations to each and everyone of you. and congratulations to the whole police department. continue to do the best you can. and keep us the world-class
. >> thank you. >> thank you. yes it's a big question there. i'm not used to seeing you here. so this is a good segue to an item later on the agenda and prepare for example the update of the prop k strategic plan and the five year prioritization program. that's the first place for us to coordinate with the mta and the other sponsors. without giving away too much of that presentation this body works with the sponsors to lay out the next five years of projects. in terms of delivering on time and on budget the most critical to watch is the n-judah customer first project. we helped partially fund a similar project on the [inaudible]. these are critical. it's really the first wave of implementation. these are not subject to the eir. they're accomplishing many of the same things and once it's approved it will make changes to that as well and that is what we will report back to you and on performance benefits as well. >> thank you. i am sure supervisors -- when it comes to that it's a big priority. thank you. >> commissioner breed. >> thank you. i just had a few questions. so t
is proposed to use green e energy certificates, it's anticipated to enroll 30 thousand residential accounts, which is about .68% of eligible customers, and they are proposing this program to serve all of the customers across their service territory. they expect to reach that 30 thousand enrollment by the end of the third year of the program, and just by way of comparison, we're talking about enrolling in our clean power sf program 50 to 90 thousand residential accounts day 1, you know, and that's in part because our program is an opt-out program, the green tariff option program pg and e is proposing is an opt-in pro program so it's projected that the differences that i communicated to you are pretty fair to assume given that that key difference in the enrollment strategies. pg and estimating is estimating their price premium to be about 6 dollars a month if r the average residential customer in pg and e territory, the proceeding had been put on hold in order to allow parties to come to agreement on pg and e's propose sal and all party settlement was not reached, and evidentiary hearings are
a communications team that takes that question and filters it through us and responds back and but we also want to use tools where people don't necessarily have to a tent ten the public meeting or we have a communication that leads a different type of communication called midnight where there was people that spend an hour learning about the wastewater system and that same group toured the southeast plans and we didn't serve drinks only 30 people came to that but we really want to build a different type of advocatey and use social media to build that thank you. and then the next steps are p -- a big deal and i know many focus in the audience have been waiting for this to happen and we will be work with closely with today resi stromb and joule yet on the study that willing a critical companion that is going on a plan that was present to you will be further ri find and further than two-three years that he selected but we will come back to the commission on a quarterly basis and the risk mitigation strategies and now we have identified that we have programmatic risk and how we can button that up so
. >> i think that this is great information and it allows us to have this conversation. i think that having more detail going forward on some of the strategies for bringing the scores up for some of these parks is really changing the trend would be very useful. >> mr. general manager. >> sure, supervisor. again, we are not particularly defensive about the data. >> no >> it is sort of helpful for us and we do guide it. >> i think that district nine, you know, in every district is a little different and the parks are a little different and each park has a unique set of challenges and one of the more encouraging stats are over all cleanliness and district nine remains as one of highest rated districts and i think that the over all scores were about 11, 12 or 88 percent, and while it was a two percent drop off from 10-11 it is up from where we started in 56 and 67. so i think that we are keeping an eye on it but one of the things that we need to understand is that these scores are snapshots in time as i think that they explained. and i would be concerned if there were a continuing d
's financial center. and the public benefits it is going to bring as mentioned the land use program is diverse and it is robust and a lot of great thinking has gone into how to make this site work, what is the right mix of uses of retail, open space, how all of this interrelates and the work that we have done is amazing and again, i think that it is going to even get better as we get closer to actually building something here. but, i think that the progress to date is very heartening. push >> and then, as the next steps, as mentioned earlier, our next item would be to come back to you with a request for endorsement of the term sheet that you have seen today. following that, we would proceed to the budget analyst for the board and the board to seek their endorsement as well. and to see that happening in april. with the improved term sheet with an endorsed term sheet we will formally end phase one of the ena and we will begin phase two the entitlement phase, eir scoping will commence with the discussions with our partners will ensue and we will start to check the box and going through the entitl
district, i think that would be more appropriatery nct 3, which would allow uses on the first floor and that is one way they are available to solve the problem. to the previous speaker's point, there are a lot of existing conditions that will take a lot of work to manipulate into this plan. and i respect the task that the planning department has ahead of it in making it all work and making it all fit. thank you very much for your time. >> thank you, mr. paul. >> hello. my name is glendon hyde and i am an entertainment commissioner, but i'm here representing myself today. i have here a list of our llps that i want to hand out. this plan has been in development as along as the entertainment commission has been around and we have seen better relations with neighbors and better understanding on their impact with neighbors. i'm going to concentrate on llps, limited live performances. you can see the orange is the limited live permits. we have offered about 30 of those so far. we have had four complaints and those are not four separate complaints. they were complaints on one place. thi
that such an undertaking could be overwhelming for us. fortunately the support that we found from others was overwhelming too. everyone took on a can-do attitude. and i would like to extend my enormous gratitude to the ports and to the mayor's office for their help in getting us here today. and also to our friends the giants that value san francisco icons. these reflect the heart and soul of the city towards anchor. and for that i would like to thank all the people of san francisco for the huge support of their city's brewery. pier 48 will ensure our capacity and secure anchor's future. beyond the brewery we want san francisco to be a must-see traction to locals and visitors ali alike. adding to that we will have restaurants and museums. we are less well known for our pioneered history for brewing. and our capacity with pier 48 allows both brewing and distilling. we envision in the rock mission development that will take advantage of the water commerce with materials coming in and exports going out. where people can wander around peering through the observation windowing seeing our beer being made. where
,000 to use at their discretion to support physical education. they have used in tha variety of ways, to help community gardens through the city, and to buy athletic supplies and so forth. it's up to the pta's discretion. and that's a valuable asset that they not only enjoyed but have been thankful for. dpw is committed for every school site that participates to do a deep cleaning twice a year. and in an effort to talk to the principals and parents letting them know that we their school site and playgrounds, we want it in a better condition than it is today. and to have a deep cleaning twice a year, is something that we are excited about doing. and so are the schools and parents. as well we have a large pool of capital available to different school sites throughout the year. basically to draw on, and we have created a grant program for pta's to apply for the funds to open on the weekend. it's one thing to open up the playground or to have a league come in or whatever it may be. and it's really been fun to talk to the different pta's involved so far. different pta's have different ideas. some
that marco really loves san francisco. and marco moved to san francisco like so many of us after falling in love with this city and i think that you fell in love with this city after a short vacation that was supposed to be just a short stay in san francisco back in 1989. and he fell in love with the city and decided to stay. and marco's legendary entrepreneurship kicked off in high gear when he began running the famous mr. good ginger beverage company from his apartment in the mission district, which i proudly represent. you know, the interesting thing is that it was based on the ginger juice that he drank when he was growing up in senegal as a little boy. in 1996 marco opened up [speaker not understood] on 19th and mission which, of course, has become an institution in that neighborhoodv. it's really an important cultural and community resource. and if you go there just about every night, you'll see that it's full of people who are there to discover, to enjoy, to celebrate the food, dance, and culture of senegal. marco, by the way, has a long history in his family of tremendous achieve
that could be a really good eligible use for any funds that we have, to have our own power system, we can help to ramp up. >> that's a great recommendation, thank you, and then as you know, puc is in the beginning phases of its sewer system improvement program and are trying to integrate some of the innovative technology resource recovery and the waste water process, so some ideas around that, and then i think one thing we were really pleased about is that last year when the legislature did their initial bills around happen trade revenue allocation, there is a requirement that up to 25% of dollars be spent in disadvantaged communities, historically, san francisco, the definition of disadvantaged communities that the state uses is one that keeps income relative to the state and so we often don't count as a disadvantaged community though we have many neighborhood that are struggling, i think the definition they're using for disadvantaged communities in the context of cap and trade dollars, the bayview hunter's point community will be eligible for those funds so we are hope hating we can try

you for listening to all of us. i'm lori thomas, the owner at 532 columbus, which is right on the block before columbus and union. i just wanted to reiterate what i have already told a lot of folks here and director reiskin, which is this is a difficult situation and i think the pagoda palace is the best alternative, as well as i can understand to minimize the disruption in north beach. during the period full time from august to the end of, nor when we had the utility work going forward, our monday to friday lunch sales dropped 25%. i would recommend that the city and mta consider some sort of rent credit for the co-located businesses, certainly on that specific block, perhaps. because it's hard to project all of the influences that affect drops in revenue; right? so i do want to say that i appreciate all the work that everybody has done to try to come up with a solution and if we have to bring the devices up in north beach, i think the pagoda theater offers the best alternative that i am aware of right now. but i do want to speak as a business owner and recognize that i'm
for bringing this to us. fred roth, senior, was an inspiration to many of us, especially those that have been community organizers like myself. he trained an army of organizers, not just for the united farm workers, but for many different struggles historically. and it's really an honor for me to stand here before you with fred roth, junior, and others to urge your support to join hundreds of other labor and community and civic organizationses and groups in urging president obama to bestow the presidential medal of honor post hume usly on fred senior. his entire life work was spirited and defiant in the struggle for freedom and dignity, especially for lower income workers, not just farmers, but disinfran hiesed and depressed communities not just the state of california, but nation wood. a more proactive struggle for equity and human dignity for everyone. i wanted to also say that a little bit of history is important. in the '50s mr. roth worked in the latino communities and barrios of los angeles, san jose, and other cities to build chapters of the cso or community service organizations, civi
that some of us will be glad that we won't have a regular mcdonald's patron in our midst. [laughter] >> i think that we will miss the fact that -- well, actually i'm not sure we'll all miss the fact that carmen rarely breaks with her modern colleagues, except on the critical issue of cat de-clawing. oh, you remember that. i think many of us will miss the fact that she has been so hard working that we were all surprised that today she didn't submit any new legislative proposals and at the last minute she asked me four tough questions about the ndaa which i appreciated. and i will just say for me, one thing i'm not going to miss as you leave is that no one is going to wonder after today if i have a sister on the board of supervisors. [laughter] >> but to just wrap it up, carmen, thank you for your service. you have been a tremendous colleague. we all look forward to working with you and serving with you as co-elected officials and we wish you all the very, very best. thank you. and with that, does anyone else have any words you'd like to say? supervisor farrell. >> thank you, president chiu
or proposed for the next budget cycle to get us through the next phase on how much more we're going to need. we've identified a couple of options. i want to clarify this isn't money that doesn't exist. some things that agencies would have in their capital budgets the enhancements is the delta we're going to have to figure out to fund. this is something i think would be an appropriate topic for the mayors staff. it's very common more than normal or not we start a project before accident funding is there. if we started the project only when we had enough money we wouldn't start the projects. i th think this would be a terrific project for grants. thanks for the time >> thank you for the presentation. i have a lot of these questions but i'll save them. we have to get ready for our next meeting. so we can go onto public comment. if anyone wants to comment please come forward >> i want to say on the face of it when i heard the the plan to push the bicycle traffic down to mission i was more surprised it seems unnatural. if you look at a map and see what goes on there the city flows like a funn
. this is work skills many of us never had. we learned to be on time, complete tasks quickly and how to work together. because of violence in the city, nobody felt safe working in lakeview and we got to help build our community and get paid for it. since we started the program, more than half of us have secured either job interviews or permanent employment. with all the summer youth employment program, this would not have happened. thank you to joyce, michelle, j.c.y.c. and [speaker not understood]. thank you fought mayor for funding this and making young people a priority. it would be nice to all of us to have access to more jobs. congratulations to all my fellow summer youth employment graduates. that's in the words of lawrence collins. * this is' a lot of people in the community hurting about him. * there's this is a reminder we are not creating a safe community. it is very hard to live with as well. thank you.
